A busy Blackpool road had to be closed for two hours after a three-car smash.
The accident happened at 4pm in North Drive, 100 metres in front of a fire engine on its way to carry out a home fire safety check.
Crews diverted to the crash and found that although the occupants of two cars had got out and were unharmed, one man was trapped in his car.
They called for an ambulance and gave first aid and oxygen.
When paramedics arrived, the man was helped from his car and was found not to be suffering from serious injuries.
The road was closed while the vehicles were recovered and police carried out accident investigation work.
